No. 2 Yellow Corn Quick View


Also known as Field corn or Dent corn, when fully ripe, has a pronounced depression or dent at the crown of the kernels. The kernels contain a hard form of starch at the sides and a soft type in the center. The soft inner starch shrinks as the kernel ripens and dries resulting in the collapse or “dent” in the tips of the kernel. Field corn varieties vary in kernel shape from long and narrow to wide and shallow. It is the type mainly grown in the United States and is used for livestock feed and many other products.
